Good food, ask the price of your dessert before ordering

Plaza Diner is now in the Take-A-Break building. (I see current reviews for Take-A-Break, which does not exist any more.) The food and service is very good. Entrees start at about $9. Our only complaint was the cost of the desserts relative to the cost of the meals. There is no dessert menu, only a... read more

We have been going to the various restaurants operated by these owners for years and have always been pleased with the quality and value. Food is fresh and hot, the service is good and the pricing is very reasonable. The menu variety, whether breakfast, lunch or dinner is incredible. One of the better casual dining experiences in the entire tri-cities... More

My wife & I had brunch here on a Saturday morning. This is our first visit to their new location on Old Vestal Rd, at the end of African Rd. They are in the location of the "old" Take-A-Break restaurant. NOTE: The sign outside says "Take-A-Break". The lower section of the sign indicates that it's the new home of the... More

It's my favorite breakfast place. Good food, good coffee and friendly service make for the perfect breakfast. Sometimes I feel like an omelet breakfast and sometimes I prefer two poached eggs...all are well prepared. My lunch favorite is a Reuben...also done well here.

Food portions are very good-sized, making meals a great value. Service very good. Very accommodating when having several people like when brother-in-law was here from far away - had many people to seat together.

I think this restaurant has some good wraps. But - they charge you too much for Mac and cheese for kids. It's insane. It's not even home made and they don't give you enough or a side. The service was just okay too.

Clean diner...A daily special is offered with a salad bar. Was disappointed as I ordered a Greek salad and when I received it I was told they were out of the dolmades.. I think waitress should have mentioned before bringing it to me...It was good overall....

Eggs ordered up and Prepared just right. Potatoes done nicely and consistently from first bite to last. Service was on point with my coffee cup at full until I was ready to leave. Will see you again when back in town.

I think for the price you pay for breakfast you can travel a little bit farther down the parkway and get better food and service . I was disappointed the last time we stop there with friends. It was not busy at all the waitress only had one other table and never came back to ask if we would like... More
